X-Men: Apocalypse may be Nicholas Hoult’s last time out as part of the X-Men. The actor who has portrayed Beast in X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past says that his contract is up after X-Men: Apocalypse.
"This is the last one I'm signed up for," Hoult told told EW at SXSW.
Hoult goes on to say that he’s not entirely opposed to working out a new deal with Fox, it just depends on the story they present him with.
"The first one did so well and [Days of Future Past] got received so brilliantly," Hoult said. "It's like, 'Wow, people really want to see the films' and the best thing is it's a great crew and cast to work with and he's a fun character. I have a good time playing him so I'd keep making them."
Writer and executive producer Simon Kinberg has said that X-Men: Apocalypse would put a focus on the love triangle between Beast, Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), and Magneto (Michael Fassbender). Could it be the final chapter?
X-Men: Apoclaypse opens May 27, 2016.
